Homeschool Preschool Weekly Update
Since I assumed I'd be busy working all week, I put together some activity trays for the girls which I had hoped they would play with one at a time and put back on the shelf when they were done, and I could get some work done. This was not quite the case (ie: gigantic mess), so I ended up doing the tray activities together with them. The photo above is a tray where they have to match picture cards and word to two word-family mats (-at and -an).
We also played a new phonics game where I wrote letters on the chalkboard and asked them to erase the letter by its sound ("erase the letter that says 'ah', "erase the letter that 'water' starts with", etc..). L really got into this game and ended up finding and erasing all the letters before her sister (I'll have to find a way to get E to do this game on her own or get them to take turns without fighting).
Even on days when I'm busy working, I always make time to read to the kids, so we've been spending approximately two hours a day reading stories. I'll write what we've been reading in another blog post.
